    Another Loss

    Post by Satoshi on Mon May 27, 2013 9:45 pm

    Well, I had two losses in a row since my last match.

    I asked my friend if she wanted to spar, because I thought my wrists have healed enough. She showed some concern, but with enough persuading, she agreed. We changed and went into the extremely large practice building. I tossed a shinai to her, which she caught with perfect precision. I took one up and moved to the edge of the room.

    We both slowly paced towards each other, then started to shift to the sides by slow steps. I quickly lunged forward and stabbed. She twisted her wrist and moved my sword outwards, and swung her sword into my side, staggering me. I regained balance and went into a more defensive mind-state.

    I looked for the slightest movements. I noticed a slight movement in her foot and I immediately took one hand off the handle, and supported the blade with my arm. A large, powerful impact struck my sword and both my feet went back a little by the extreme force that she used. I was slowly getting overpowered.

    My legs got lower and lower until I was on one knee, struggling to repel her blow. I pulled my arms back, absorbing some of the attack, and pushed as hard as I could, sending her tumbling back slightly. I quickly rushed to my feet and hit her in the shoulder with my blade. We both became motionless again, trying to anticipate the others techniques.

    I tried stabbing at her, but she swiftly moved her arm upwards and uppercut my sword, making me wide open. She made a few quick jabs, hitting me in the ribs. I fell on my back, and slowly started to get up. As I looked up, I regretted taking my eyes off her. She was above me, weapon in hand. She struck down with monstrous strength.

    Attempting to block again, I put my sword up, but with her power, she literally broke my sword in half. I stared absentmindedly at my sword, and had a familiar pain in my wrists. They were bleeding from the stress I put on them. Luckily, what we were wearing had long, albeit lose sleeves, so she couldn't see it.

    I got up and she tried slashing at me again, I grabbed her wrist, pulled it behind me, and elbowed her in the stomach. She backed up slightly, and attacked again. This time, she swung her left hand, trying to punch me. I blocked it...barely. Both my hands were occupied, and she hit me in the side with the shinai.

    I immediately dropped to the ground grasping my side. Pain was everywhere in my body, and it was hard to breathe. I tried getting up, but only fell back down from extreme imbalance. After many tries, I managed to stand up. She swung at me, and I managed to dodge, I tried to ball up my hands, but they weren't responding.

    We both looked at the floor and saw crimson liquid drops on the floor. She immediately dropped her shinai and pulled my sleeves back. She noticed what this had done to my wrists and put new bandages on them because of the blood on the old ones. I told her that is was two losses in a row, and we had a nice time after that.

    I guess that life isn't so bad after all. It seems to have some points where it can be nice, but the same thing applies for the downs in life.

    I'm glad you're feeling better! :3

    This stuff sounds like a lot of fun, I wish I was this athletic.

    Thanks!

    It is quite a bit of fun. All you need to do is train enough, and you will be doing this in no time.

    I'm sluggish, I'd have to get into shape before I start practicing.

    I'm starting to lift weights on Friday, maybe by the end of the summer I'll have lost my sluggishness.

    I forgot to mention, we do not use protective equipment, so we depend on a pain tolerance. I don't know if you are going to use any protective gear to prevent potentially fatal injuries.

    I have a very high pain tolerance.

    I'd probably use equipment for safety's purpose, but I can take a beating, not much of a problem.

    I swear every time I hear of this girl's ability to this kind of damage I imagine broken bones in half the human body. I am glad to hear your wrist are fine...well better.

    Getting out there I see, despite a wrist injury. Nice. Glad to see you are feeling better.

    I've taken plenty of beatings...not really something to brag about though.

    She does know how to break bones with her bare hands with no problem. She prefers not to use hand-to-hand combat. She has a love for ropes, hammers, and scissors. I shiver at those thoughts. (Memories)

    Heh, I have too, it's not exactly fun...

    Oh well, she didn't hurt you too bad did she? That sounded really painful. silly

    I meant that saying that you've been beaten many times isn't much to brag about, not the fact that you can take beatings.

    No, she always goes easy on me, so I am never hurt too bad. The strike isn't as painful, but the effects were horrific.

    If this what you call going easy on you I dread the person she doesn't go easy on.

    Ah, I see, yeah that's nothing to be proud of :3

    I'd want her to go easy on me, she sounds really strong.

    That person's life won't last much longer if this is easy.

    I'm...bored/sleepy a lot. I took 5 naps today, and it's night time now. Other than that nothings wrong with my mood.
    Sorry if this post is off-topic from your op, but...

    I did play Dark Souls and Castlevania: Mirror of Fate today.
    I'm disappointed with where they are going with Castlevania. No more item finds/drops. But I will say they improved the graphics a lot, and that they went back to platformer.
    I'm at the boss fight with the Succubus right now.

    There is another question to answer in your thread I made for you, from me.

    I've seen it before. I want to make a different thread to put a topic about something about her that is a little...off. The thing is that I don't want to seem like I'm spamming threads.

    To answer Fluttershy's question. I have played SoTN...by far my favorite Castlevania game.

    That's no biggie. You're more than welcome to create threads. Just not a bunch of spam threads like Renny did. We've got enough spam threads as is.
    So I say go for it.
    EDIT: Portrait of Ruin and/or Circle of the Moon is my favorite(s).

    Was that a successful attempt at humor?

    It's soft humor. Which is ok. Not my particular favorite, but still got me.
    Though did you have something else in mind, comrade?
